Performance on achieving our strategic objectives

ArcelorMittal South Africa is a R35 billion business directly employing 9 596 people and creating value for 3 500 suppliers and their 25 000 employees. We contribute to the betterment of communities and the South African economy (with a direct GDP contribution of almost 1%).

If we are to continue creating value for our investors, employees, customers, other stakeholders and the country over the short and long term, our strategy has to effectively address and mitigate a number of key risks and challenges and exploit definable opportunities. In particular, we have to embrace and devise new, safer and better ways of making and selling steel.

In these pages we unpack what our high-level objectives mean in reality, what material issues and stakeholders they impact (and why these issues are important), how we measure our performance in delivering against these objectives and how we will strive to achieve these objectives in 2015.
